SOS program was developed by Dr. Kay Toomey, in order to address problematic feeding behaviors. The SOS Approach is based on a transdisciplinary team approach which assess the “whole child” including muscles; sensory processing; oral-motor skills; learning, behavior and cognition; nutrition, and the environment. This program focuses on increasing a child’s comfort level by exploring and learning about the different properties of food. The program allows a child to interact with food in a playful, non-stressful way through a hierarchy of required steps in order to promote confidence as well as development of tolerance and acceptance of various foods. Our therapists are fully trained in the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) feeding program.
